Sorry to cross post, but I hope one of you sundew experts can help me.

Alright, y'all, help a brother out. Having a memory span that rivals a goldfish combined with moving and shifted labels, I can't properly id 3 out of these 4. Any thoughts?

Maybe omissa

Image
Definitely capillaris coming out of dormancy

Image
Spat or cap?

Image
Same as the previous?

If I can't hang a good tag on these guys, they will be consigned to "The Bog For Those That Have No Name" and I will be more careful with my next round of seedlings.

Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.

Bumping this up. Almost a month has passed and things aren't any clearer. The plant has flowered and set seed but I still can't figure out what it is.

None of them are D. omissa.
This is only my opinion and guess but....
1 looks like capillaris, distinct straight petiole.
2
3 looks like spatulata or tokaiensis, tapered petiole, distinction between petiole and lamina, tentacles on petiole
4 looks like 3.
When they produce seed, look at it with a loupe.
Capillaris seed is shaped like a Rugby ball, blunt ended football.
Spatulata seed is shaped like pointy ended US footballs.
Tokaiensis seed is shaped like tiny black Sweet Potatoes.
There are proper botanical descriptive words, but I don't know Latin.
ICPS has a seed image databank here: https://www.carnivorousplants.org/about ... SeedImages

Good luck

Number 4 is definitely a spat and I think that 3 is the same. It will be setting seed shortly.
Here are the seeds from #4.

Now I have an excuse to order capillaris seed from the seed bank!

Yep. number 3 is a spat also. I'm looking forward to seeing what #1 turns out.
